From the Aspen Ideas Festival, recorded Tuesday, June 26, 2018. Jordan Peterson, author of the best-selling 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, may be one of the most famous intellectuals in North America today. He also may be among the most misunderstood. His fans say that he’s saved their lives, and detractors say that he’s the gateway drug to the alt-right. Who is this psychologist-philosopher whom so many of us had never heard of two years ago, and what does he really believe?

Jordan speaks with an EXTREMELY ideologically driven woman. She epitomizes everything a conservative is against. Hard-core feminist. Anti-capitalist. Above all she hates the patriarchy.
(talking about the over-liberalization of college and universities nowadays)
[Jordan] Twenty-year-olds don’t have that much power, but they’re not twenty forever. Ten years later they’re thirty. Twenty years later they’re forty. And whatever happens in the university happens everywhere five years later.
[Helen] And very, very sadly for people in my politics—left-wing politics—what happens to people as they get older is that traditionally they got more conservative.
To talk sensible to a fool with precise consistency is a great achievement. Well done Jordan Peterson. – Jaron Lines
He mastered the art of raising his voice without ever raising his voice… Simply Beautiful. – D.T Nash
